Internet Upload/Download

Some internet providers give customers the size of the Upload/download for each type of internet connection they go for [light,Pro,etc...]
OK, for the download , I guess it's pretty clear , that's when you download files from internet [http,FTP sites] to your own computer.
the bigger the file the longer it will take to download it

What about UPLOAD, is this the size limit of an attachment that can be sent via email?

for instance if the provider say my type of connection [Light] has an upload of 512K, does that mean I can send only attachment+email that amount to 512KB ?

any expert out there to clear up this confusion.

Thanks

Upload is the exact same as how you described download, except going the other way ;)

No, that's the 'speed' that is available.  ADSL, Asymmetric Digital Subscriber Line, is the service that many of us have.  It is called 'Asymmetric' because the 'speed' is not the same in both directions.  Since most users are expected to be 'downloading' to their computers much more than they are 'uploading', the 'download' speed is usually much faster.  My service here is rated at 10Mbps download / 768Kbps upload.  It has nothing to do with file sizes.  Email services and programs often have file size limits but that is a separate issue.

Upload and download speed means the time it will take to do each file. Most cases the download speed it much faster than the upload speed.  512k upload speed is the speed and amount of time it will take for ANY size file. If its 1mb or 1gb the upload speed will be 512k.  For email SMTP servers have a limit of the size of email attachment they will accept default is around 10mb. Hope this helps

Anything that goes from your computer out to the internet is an upload.  That includes all email that you send, whether it has an attachment or not.  If you go to a web page and 'upload' a file (like a picture on Facebook), that is also an upload, data that goes from your computer out to somewhere on the internet.

Note the UPLOAD speed from your provider has nothing to do with the size of your files, only the speed that they are sent at.
